Celebrated Mzansi singer, Ndivhudzannyi Ralivhona, known by her stage name Makhadzi has been left traumatized after she was robbed at gunpoint by some armed men outside a venue where she was due to perform.
According to her management, Makhadzi was standing outside her car at Ga-Rankuwa Shisanyama where she was scheduled to perform when two men armed with a gun approached her and took her phone.
After taking her phone, the robbers then went on to fire at her while she run towards the venue to take cover.
“I notified the promoter that we have arrived. The dancers were shown a table to settle and wait. Makhadzi remained in the car to rest and there was no security around…
The guy put his gun on Makhazi’s neck and took her phone from her hand. And when she started screaming and running he cocked his gun and shot towards Makhadzi and dancers but missed them…
Everyone who was at the parking lot ran away. Upon leaving the venue we noticed a car following us, we went to the nearest police station.”
A case has since been opened to investigate and apprehend the perpetrators. The singer who is by no surprise traumatized by the dreadful incident has been scheduled to undergo therapy.
“We opened a case at Ga-Rankuwa police station. Police even escorted us out of Ga-Rankuwa…As the company, we are shocked by this incident that someone would want to harm one of the country’s superstars. We are happy that she is safe and the dancers…Today (Tuesday), we have organized a counseling [session] for her and the dancers just to deal with the trauma. As the company, we promised to beef up security for our artists when they go out to work.”
